Nadine Araksi Silverthorne
Nadine Araksi (formerly Silverthorne) has spent nearly two decades creating click-worthy content and digital strategies for media companies, apps, and websites. She has worked for exciting brands and publications like HGTV.ca, FoodTV.ca, Alliance Films, Canadian Geographic, Canadian Family, Random House of Canada and Sweetspot.ca. Nadine spent many happy years at Today’s Parent, helping drive the success of that brand in the digital and social space with the best people in the business (and got to offer her two cents on parenting, daily). She is currently the Director of Product Management for Rogers Publishing and thoroughly loves being a boss lady.
After navigating her youngest child’s rare disease and subsequent hospitalization in 2013, followed by the breakup of her marriage in 2017, Nadine found solace in the communities and friendships she had cultivated over the years. Always on one journey of self-discovery or another, Nadine hopes to share her experiences of moving from darkness to light with courage, kindness, and gratitude with those who are ready to listen and use them as a catapult for their own journeys.

She has worked with brands and companies including Shoppers Drug Mart, Rogers Media (publishing, radio, and TV), Molson, Trojan, Royal Bank, Holt Renfrew, and at the CBC.
